Start by creating a new document.Goto file>new and set the setting as shown in the image below.
Now place the sand beach image to the main canvas by selecting File>place then locate the sand beach image and name it base.We use place command because photoshop automatically place the image as smart object.
Now add a layer mask to the base image by selecting second button on layer panel or see the below image.Then pick the brush tool by pressing (B) on keyboard and gently paint with soft round black brush on the layer mask. You can see the result below.
Now, add a Hue/Saturation(layer>new adjustment layer>hue/saturation or see the image below)adjustment layer then click the button shown in the image to create a clipping mask.By Creating Clipping mask this layer(Hue/Saturation) will only effect the layer which is clip to it not to the rest of the layers.Set the setting of the Hue/Saturation as shown in the image below.
Here are the results.
Now, Place the sky image below the base layer.
Now,Add a Curves and Brightness/Contrast adjustment layer to sky and set the setting as shown in the image.
Here are the results.
